Enfoques prácticos hacia el policonsumo de sustancias
La investigación científica y las herramientas clínicas son valisoso elementos que contribuyen en el tratamiento eficaz de los TCS y algunas de sus amplias consecuencias en la población. Sin embargo, la investigación sobre TCS se ha centrado tradicionalmente en sustancias individuales, considerando perfiles separados y dejando de lado el uso de múltiples sustancias. Los estudios clínicos a menudo excluyen a las personas con múltiples antecedentes de uso de drogas, y muchas pautas abordan los TCS por separado.

Current Scientific Evidence About Mutual Help Groups
This presentation summarizes the current evidence about the effectiveness of mutual help groups and the mechanisms of action in these groups, including AA, SMART, LifeRing, and WFS. AA is comparably effective to well-implemented CBT. The evidence so far suggests that the other groups are comparably effective to AA. Further studies are in progress. Similar to evidence about common factors in psychotherapy, mutual help groups appear to have common factors. Any freely chosen mutual help group appears likely to be helpful.
This is a free online educational workshop aimed at people who use drugs and/or alcohol problematically, nurses, researchers and all other heathcare workers who have an interest in the addictions field.
There will be three presentations of roughly 40-45 minutes with some time for Q & A afterwards. Registrants will be sent the link to access the speakers in advance of the event. Please ensure your computers or smartphones will allow you to access microsoft teams.
